Program Description:

This is an ideal programme for those who would like to work as an accountant, financial manager, controller or financial analyst. You can choose the one-year or the two-year master programme. A Master in Business Administration guarantees an education that meets international expectations. Students choose courses in business administration and other subjects to create their own degree. For a specialization in accounting, a combination with judicial courses such as commercial or tax law is a good choice. A financially oriented degree could include courses in economics, mathematics or statistics. The one-year Master's degree requires courses in accounting and/or finance 15 ECTS cr., research methods 15 ECTS cr., and a degree project 15 ECTS cr. The two-year Master's degree requires an additional course in business administration of 15 ECTS cr., preferably accounting and/or finance, and a degree project of 30 ECTS cr. (including or replacing the one-year master thesis) The remaining degree requirements of 15 ECTS cr. and 30 ECTS cr. respectively are optional and can be studied abroad.
